Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
An edit that needed completion prior to a huge convention. The client was unsure how to present some elements and we came up with solutions that they loved. the convention was a hit. There were several other projects like this which resulted in great work and satisfied clients - an interview qith President Jimmy Carter, a Corporate Training Series, a Reel for a Broadcast Journalist, a PowerPoint Slideshow and much more.
